Heraldry History & Dictionary

Heraldry in its most general sense encompasses all matters relating to the duties and responsibilities of officers of arms. To most, though, heraldry is the practice of designing, displaying, describing, and recording coats of arms and badges. Historically, it has been variously described as “the shorthand of history” (Fox-Davies) and “the floral border in the garden of history” (Moncreiffe & Pottinger).

Proverbs of the Moment
Gaelic Proverbs come primarily from the western Highlands and Islands of Scotland, and they have a distinctly rural or agricultural flavor which reflects the society from which they were gathered. It is to be expected that many of them pertain to the weather, to the planting of crops, and to country life in general. Others reflect the Gaelic love of company and hospitality, fear of poverty and laziness.

Gaelic Proverb:
“Dheanadh e rud-eigin do dh’aon fhear Ach’s beag a chuid do dhithis e,” Mar a thuirt Alasdair Mňr mu’n an t-saoghal.

English Translation:
“It would be something for one man, But a small portion for two,” As Alexander the Great said about the world.
